Shmuel Auerbach (Hebrew: שמואל אורבך) (born 1931) is a prominent Haredi rabbi in Jerusalem, Israel. He is regarded as one of the leading non-Hasidic Lithuanian poskim (halachic authorities) for all Haredi Ashkenazi Jews living in Israel, whose views and declarations cannot be disputed. He is the rosh yeshiva of Yeshivas Maalot HaTorah and the nasi (president) of Yeshivas Midrash Shmuel and Yeshivas Toras Simcha, both in Jerusalem. For a short time, he also served as one of the roshei yeshiva of Yeshivas Itri in Jerusalem. He is a current member of the Moetzes Gedolei HaTorah of the Degel HaTorah Israeli political party, and heads the Etz party, which he founded. He resides in the Sha'arei Hesed neighborhood of Jerusalem.
Auerbach is the eldest son of Rabbi Shlomo Zalman Auerbach and his wife, Chaya Rivka Ruchamkin. He was born in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Sha'arei Hesed, as was his father. He married Rachel Paksher (d. 11 January 1990). They had no children. He named his musar sefer Ohel Rachel in her memory.
